Vincent Girardin, Volnay 1er Cru Santenots

The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own, and began producing wine from two hectares of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth Vincent had a passion for working with vines, and great respect for the potential that they represent; his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune.

85 year old vines. After a cold maceration of a few days, the active phase of fermentation takes place with temperature control. During this period, the wine is pumped over and/or punched down. After pneumatic pressing the wines are put into barrels (about 30% new wood) where the maturing process takes place. 15 months for this wine, during which time the malolactic fermentation took place. One month before bottling, the wine from the different barrels is assembled in vats. This charming wine presents a beautiful melted structure, with a lot of volume. In mouth is opulent and complex. Fine red meats, game birds and dishes in red wine sauce, even slightly spicy ones, cheeses such as Brie, Chaource, Reblochon.
